Live Skull -s/t 12"
Live Skull were from NY and played noise rock similar to Sonic Youth. Some consider them to be a Sonic Youth copy but I think the band has a style of their own.
Live Skull formed in 1983 and this 12" is their very first release. The band went on to record another 2 great albums on Homestead: 'Bringing Home The Bait' and 'Cloud One'. After a live album, Thalia Zedek from Uzi joined the band and later, she and Marnie Greenholz left the band and Sonda Andersson of Rat At Rat R took over the vocals. Never heard the later Live Skull.
More on Live Skull here and here.
